Track Name: We Want You Dead
There’s a shot in the night, a song is sung
To shatter the walls and awake the dead
For too long they’ve rested, in tombs of dust
Shatter their graves, beneath the ruins of age

From below
Their chant begins
From below
Hear their cry

You can’t escape
Their eyes aflame with a brilliant light
They’ll march upon your battlements
And trample the thrones of self appointed kings

From below
Their chant begins
From below hear their cry

We want you dead
Mediocrity
We want you dead
Your soulless legacy
Track Name: Just A Matter Of Time
Ancient force beyond the core
Fuelled by violence, bloodshed, war
Born to keep the rule of law
Striding through the city gates
Conquered armies in his wake
Set him up to dominate

Time seems to end, but then it goes again

To see the blissful permanence
Eternal Resilience
Deceive the minds of those who rule

Emperor upon his seat
With the world beneath his feet
Soon to know his first defeat
Plotters whisper in the dark
A traitor’s knife found its mark
A lifetime’s work ripped apart

The day comes when leaves must fall
And all within must turn to dust
Blood of kings flows on the stones
Soaks the ground beneath the throne
Until another God is born
Percolate in a new form
All who cried will cease to mourn
Track Name: How Much Do They Know?
Total domination has been achieved
Your mind for others to use
No need for torture or to coerce
Social sublimation thoughts of their own creation

(It never came down to)
Guns pointed in your direction
Just subtle thought process correction
You were never held against your will
Just fed once side until you’d had your fill

Masses of people mentally enslaved
The greatest care is taken that’s how it stays

(It never came down to)
Guns pointed in your direction
Just subtle thought process correction
You were never held against your will
Just fed once side until you’d had your fill

No permission to have your own volition
That contradicts the vision of a state derived religion
Don’t let them know you are free
Track Name: This Water's Not For Drinking
Manipulation through your eyes
Poisoned jack lead in your head
Telling you what to think
Telling you what to say

I wasn’t born as your creation
My mind is not for you to shape
I pull the plug on your dominion
Your seeds will never grow

Synapses sharpened
With a whetstone
Get your focus once again
You have the key to your
Liberation
So fill the room with unclipped wings
Track Name: The End
Respite. The war is over. Count up your casualties
Broken. The hearts of men. Weakened and diminished
Surrender or acquiesce to certain prostitution

The silent procession of doomed souls
Through the wilderness of a concrete wasteland
Strewn with corpses, of dearly held convictions
The voice of mockery echoes off the hills

Fallen idols
Disfigured beauty
Corrupted ideologues
Dreams of vast horizons
Lie trampled in the dust

This is the way it ends
This is the only way it could be
Such ambitious dreams
Must be crushed beneath their feet
